Inner Product, Linear Space, Constant Polynomial and Mean Square Deivation

Let C[1,3] be the (real) linear space of all real continuous functions on the closed interval [1,3], equipped with the inner product defined by setting <f,g> := 1&#8747;3f(t)g(t)dt, f,g E C[1,3]. Let f(t) = 1/t, t E [1,3]. (i). Show that the constant polynomial g which best approximates f on [1,3] (in the sense of least

Stereographic Projection, Riemann Sphere and Mapping

A plane is inserted through the equator of a unit sphere. A point on the sphere is mapped onto the plane by creating a line from the point on the sphere, through the north pole, where this line hits the plane is the projection of the point. Show that circles on the sphere map to circles on the plane except when the circles run


Let the dihedral group D_n be given by elements "a" of order "n" and "b" of order 2, subject to the identity b*a=a^-1*b. Prove that a^m is conjugate to only a^-m, and that a^m8b is conjugate to a^(m+2k)*b, for any integer k.

Propagation of Error

(See attached file for full problem description and equations) --- A 100 uL (microLiter) sample of a 7.0 millimolar protein is diluted to 500.0mL. If the error in measurement of the molarity(M) is ±0.02 mM, of the uL pipet is ±1 uL, and of the volume of the 500 mL flask is ±0.15 mL, determine how the molarity of the resul

Borel-measurable function

Prove that the following function is Borel-measurable function. f_n(t) = { [t*2^n]*2^-n , 0 < t < n, n , t > or = to n | f_n(t) - t | < 2^-n , t < n } I want a detailed proof. I want to kn

Solving 3 Quadratic Equations : Optimum Methods

I had a 50 problem assignment, and have 3 questions that I either want to check my answers with a tutor, or had no idea how to figure them out. I have attached a Microsoft Word document, and would prefer getting that sent back to me with the work and answers shown so that I can understand it. Thank You! --- (See atta
